commented on SL Letter of the Day: Psychopathic Tendencies
Yes, a very compassionate response, and it's a shame that so many commenters are dismissing him out of hand. The LW is being very honest with how he sees himself (psychopathic, assholish, smart, desperately lonely) and is asking for help in order to change, and Dan urges him to get the help he needs in order to behave and interact differently with people. The LW hasn't told us that he's ever hurt anyone or created drama, yet people are responding as if that's exactly what he's done.
